my niece just started hers (she will be 8 on christmas eve) they took her to the pedi just to check and of course got some very horrible reasons it COULD be... turned out to be a issue with her pituitary gland producing too many hormones. I believe they did an MRI just to rule out the more scary reasons. 

 

Although some kids do start early so it could just be ... starting early. Keep in mind that when one first starts their period essp when so young it may not be regular for a long time (it might be on the other hand) so if she is having her period and then all of a sudden doesn't for a few months don't freak out, totally normal as long as their are no signs of infection or anything.
